Lorne Lanning Speaks
"Since Sherry McKenna and I founded Oddworld Inhabitants back in 1994, we have eagerly anticipated the moment when a densely packed and finely printed 'Art of Oddworld' book would find life," said Lorne Lanning, President/Creative Director of Oddworld Inhabitants.
"Finally, and only a decade later, the day has come for us to reveal the seldom witnessed pre-production efforts of the incredibly talented artists that have given so much of their energy and talent (not to mention late nights and weekends) in effort to create the uniquely odd universe that has since found its way into millions of hearts and homes throughout the globe.
This collection of work not only reflects the intense artistic effort that has gone into the creation of our heroes and their plights, but it also reveals the visual fuel that hung on our walls and continually inspired us as we stumbled our way through the trials and tribulations that litter the hazardous crossroads where creative artistry and free enterprise collide."
